After playing up his connections to Cesar Chavez and the United Farmworkers to get elected, Jerry Brown vetoes the farmworkers’ bill of rights with no explanation.
With Santorum’s position that doctors be criminally prosecuted for performing abortions, he’s really saying that the hired gun who performed the homicide be prosecuted, but the person who hired them is actually a victim.
He’s a lawyer, he knows better. And if he knows better, he knows the wives, friends, sisters and mothers will be prosecuted for murder. Gee, I wonder how most people would feel if he put it that way?
Can you get any crazier? We invade them, kill hundreds of thousands of their people and this prick asks them to cover our expenses:
BAGHDAD (AFP) – Iraqi authorities have asked for a US congressman to leave the country after he called for Baghdad to repay part of the money spent by Washington since the 2003 invasion, a spokesman said on Saturday.
Republican representative Dana Rohrabacher’s remarks at a news conference in Baghdad stood in stark contrast to those by senior American officials, who have pressed Iraqi officials to decide soon whether they want US troops to stay beyond a year-end withdrawal deadline.
“We called the US embassy yesterday and we told them to ask the congressmen to leave Iraq,” government spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh told AFP. “We don’t want them here. What they said was inappropriate.”
Dabbagh said Rohrabacher and his congressional delegation had not raised the issue in a meeting with Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, contradicting the US politician’s comments that he had spoken about potential repayments with the Iraqi leader.
It was not immediately clear if Rohrabacher and the delegation were still in the country when the request was made.
“Once Iraq becomes a very rich and prosperous country… we would hope that some consideration be given to repaying the United States some of the mega-dollars that we have spent here in the last eight years,” Rohrabacher told journalists at the US embassy on Monday.
Can you imagine all the angry chain emails that would be flying if a Democrat had said that?
Using a state helicopter to go to your kid’s baseball game? Thrifty!
I especially liked the fact that he had a car drive him 100 yards to the field:
The helicopters are designed for law enforcement, emergency medical transportation and homeland security duties, said Paul Loriquet, spokesman for the Attorney General’s Office. Helicopters not outfitted specifically for medical use can also be used to ferry executives, he said.
Loriquet said the contract for the helicopters was signed in 2009 during the Corzine administration.
He did not have a cost per hour for the choppers. When former Gov. James E. McGreevey reimbursed the state for using choppers for political use in 2002, it was at a rate of $1,200 an hour.
Why would anyone in their right mind pay any attention at all to anything published by Andrew Breitbart, that drunken sot?
Another GOP closet case goes after Elizabeth Warren and calls her a liar at yesterday’s hearing:
